Built in 1700 from locally quarried sandstone for Captain John Grant, our Spiritual Home, Easter Elchies House, is a fine example of a Highland manor house. The 390-acre Macallan Estate lies in an area of natural beauty and is farmed sensitively, in harmony with the environment.
The Macallan’s Curiously Small Stills are amongst the smallest on Speyside. Their unique size and shape give the spirit maximum contact with the copper, helping to concentrate the ‘new make’ spirit and provide the rich, fruity, full-bodied flavours characteristic of The Macallan.
There are fourteen of these spirit stills, crafted from copper, each holding an initial ‘charge’ of 3,900 litres.
These stills are so famous that they have appeared on the back of a Bank of Scotland £10 banknote!
